Mustard seeds (top left) may be ground (top right) to make different kinds of mustard. Dijon isn’t the only place with a favorite local mustard. Other common regional mustard varieties include American (the familiar yellow squeeze-bottle stuff), English, so-called French mustard” (actually invented in England as a less-spicy alternative to English mustard), Bavarian sweet mustard, Italian fruit mustards, Midwestern beer mustard, Creole mustard, and so many wildly different German mustards that the phrase German mustard” is essentially meaningless.
In 1883, Moritz Plochman pledged to make first-class mustards only.” From creating the classic squeeze barrel in the 1950s to adding new varieties over the years, we’ve remained committed to making the best mustard ‘round.
Locations renowned for their mustard include Dijon (medium-strength) and Meaux in France; Norwich (very hot) and Tewkesbury ‘s mustard , in England; and Düsseldorf (hot), Bautzen (medium-strength) and Bavaria in Germany. They vary in the subsidiary spices and in the preparation of the mustard seeds. The mustard husks may be ground with the seeds, or winnowed away after the initial crushing; “whole-grain mustard” retains some unground or partially ground mustard seeds. Bavarian sweet mustard contains very little acid, substituting copious amounts of sugar for preservation. The Tecuci mustard from Romania is a sweet variety very popular in Eastern Europe and is suitable for grilled meats such as mititei Sometimes, prepared mustard is simmered to moderate its bite, and sometimes it is aged. Irish mustard is a whole-grain mustard blended with whiskey , stout (commonly Guinness ), or honey Karashi is a spicy Japanese mustard.
That said, the liquid used to moisten those seeds and bind the mustard also has a large impact on its pungency. See, dried mustard seeds or powders have no real heat on their own. It’s not until they’re combined with water that natural enzymes present in the mustard will work to liberate pungent compounds from their dormant state. The more acidic the liquid, the slower this reaction will take place, and the longer the final heat will last. Mustards made with vinegar will have a long-lasting, slow burn, while those made with less acidic liquids like pure water, will be extremely pungent when freshly prepared, but lose that punch more quickly.
Creole, Stone Ground, etc.: These types of mustard use a coarse to chunky grind and usually have some texture in addition to good, deep flavor. Some versions of spicy brown could fall into this category.

These are just ground mustard seeds. You can find coarse grinds, but most preground mustard seeds are made into powder. Different brands or types will have different blends of seeds to get varying levels of heat. Mix the powder with vinegar or water until you have a paste, wait about 10-15 minutes for the oils and enzymes to work their magic, and boom, you’ve got homemade mustard.

Lewisite, an arsenical vesicant, was also developed during WWI, but never deployed on the battlefield. It is mentioned here as the methods and formulas for its production are available on the open literature (Ledgard, 2003), making it a possible choice of terrorists for a chemical weapon attack.
